The recycling bin is also being offered at the ninth county park, Settlers Cabin, on Saturday, October 2 from 8:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Wave Pool Parking Lot as part of the Hard to Recycle collection event. The Hard to Recycle event is geared towards collecting electronic items, specifically computers and televisions, and attachments. While the recycling bin is free and accessible without registration for county residents, recycling all other items at the Hard to Recycle event requires registration. Registration is free, but there are some fees associated with recycling certain materials. More information, including registration links, is available at https://prc.org/programs/collection-events/hard-recycle-collections/west/.
